Cold and flu season is here resulting in more indoor time with our kids. Keep them busy and quiet with this ultimate list of sick day activities geared towards kids ages 3-7.
I can’t believe I’m about to say this…but, my child is SICK AGAIN! It’s fine. I’m fine. We’ll all sleep again some day.
It’s going to be a long cold + flu season.
Recently I shared some mom hacks for surviving a sick day with your kids and one of the tips was being prepared with quiet activities. We all know when that medicine hits, kids tend to think they’re good as new when actually they still need to be resting.
So hand your kids a Lolleez Throat Soothing Pop and let’s get to it.
Yep. That’s right. Lolleez Organic Throat Soothing Pops for Kids are the handy little hack I always keep in my mom toolkit. They’re made from USDA Certified Organic ingredients. You know the kind, the ones you can actually pronounce like organic honey and natural fruit pectin.
Lolleez are also Non-GMO and allergy friendly. (gluten, dairy and nut free)
Turn your kids grumpiness around with one of three yummy flavors: Watermelon, Strawberry and Orange Mango. Best part is they’re available like everywhere: CVS, Target, Walgreens, Kroger and on Amazon. Grab the NEW flavor – Mixed Berry with Elderberry exclusively at Walgreens.
OK, now on to the good stuff…how in the world do you keep your kids calm and quiet while they’re sick?
